To avoid local transportation expenses as well as difficulties when arriving, you should consider shipping vehicle in plenty of time to ensure your car arrives when you do or well before.
Those shipping a vehicle from a foreign country you must ensure that the vehicle complies with all United States EPA vehicle emission standards and is equipped with a catalytic converter. Foreign cars must also comply with all the usual safety standards (lights, reflectors, turn signals, no cracked windshields, good main and emergency brakes, horn, seatbelts, rear view mirror, good tires, etc.)
Members shipping American or European-made cars should buy and ship common repair and replacement items--oil, gas, and air filters, injectors, spark plugs, etc. Because repairs are expensive, and ordering even common parts for American or European brand vehicles can take as long as 8-10 weeks, vehicles should be in tip-top shape before shipping. American/European vehicle dealerships are small and some brands are not represented.
